|Reminiscent of the failed Real ID Act, in one fell swoop this would convert E-Verify into a national identification system and take us far down the path toward its use for a variety of other purposes. The merger of E-Verify and state Department of Motor Vehicle information would create a giant photo database of everyone in America. That database would potentially be available anywhere there is access to the internet. (Interestingly enough, the bill's drafters understand how hostile Americans are to a national ID system and explicitly bar the creation of a national ID card, even though the proposal creates a de facto one).|
